‘It’s the Swinging and Twirling for Me’: Fans Get Excited to Watch Serena Williams Play on the Court with Her Daughter

Serena Williams may have a little mini-me on her hands. On Jan. 19, she uploaded a TikTok video of her daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., hitting a few tennis balls next to her on the court.

Alexis is also seen handing her mom a few of the bright yellow balls to hit across the court and over the net. Williams wrote that her fans were watching “Footage from my practice before leaving with my training partner @olympiaohanian.”

Fans instantly fell in love and could not get over what skills she already has at the young age of three.

One person wrote, “She got great form. Not at al afraid of the ball. I love that you do this with her- pour into her sis. You are raising a champion,” while another person wrote, “It’s the swinging and twirling for me! 😍👏👏.”

Someone else declared Alexis to be the “Future Wimbledon Champion! ❤️❤️❤️.”

The Wimbledon Tournament is one of the four tennis grand slam tournaments, which also includes the U.S. Open, the French Open and the Australian Open. Williams herself has won seven out of her 11 Wimbledon appearances in women’s singles. She’s also won six times at Wimbledon playing alongside her older sister Venus Williams in women’s doubles.

Another ecstatic fan wrote, “Omg.. i absolutely love this. Just to have her in that environment.. taking it all in. She’ll be a force to be reckoned with. And i must add… shes having fun. Great job Mom 💜❤️,” speaking greatness into Williams’ only child.

In October, Williams announced to her Instagram followers that she signed her daughter up for some tennis lessons. She said, “I signed Olympia up for tennis lessons.” To further clarify, she added, “Don’t even start with me because I’m not giving her tennis lessons, I signed her up for some.”

The 39-year-old continued, “But the lady has no idea that it’s my daughter, so we’ll see how that goes. I’m not a pushy mom, but I know how I like techniques, I want to make sure she’s good at teaching Olympia some techniques.”

It looks like the techniques have been paying off for the little one and in no time she may be dominating the court.
